Subject: Gone are the days when the ladies said PLEASE..
Brent doesn't sing too much but big in the instrument mix.
Great 1st set-well played with secondary tunes
like Big River and C.C. Rider well jammed
Before B.E. Jerry was riffing one of his ballad tunes.
It has been a few years but Ithaca was one hard core hippie town
last time I happened to visit I dunno back in the late 80's
Passenger, I love this tune
So high energy
Always considered this and Cumberland
as connected to the Phil Zone.
Yeah, HIGH TIME -what a cool tune
Intro sounds a lot like Too Lay Me Down to my ear
but wow can't go wrong with High Time
Right into>LET IT GROW!
and >Don't Ease (this is an 11 song set)
That is a serious combo
big jams in Shakedown
good dance hall Bertha
One of those combo's
I liked but not everybody in my camp.
Not sure just going with Saint of Circumstance
really was an improvement
Spanish Jam-pretty lengthy and mellow
Truckin' Weir counts it off with the whistle
"You better get back Truckin' on"
A little late in the evening but getting some slide work in
Subject: Beautiful set

Turns out that Althea and CC Rider were player in the same show 51 times. Only once both in the second set and 40 times both in the first set.
Of those times that they were played in the same set, 15 are CC then Althea, 11 are Althea then CC and 15 they are split by other songs. There are 127 CC Riders all told, so about 20% of the time they are played one after the other.
Interestingly, the CC then Althea combination was dominant in the early years and Althea then CC was more common later, so this example was somewhat rare for its era.
Subject: Ha ha, sounds like Mickey chanting and yelling during Drums.
I thought I heard some Mickey hootin and hollerin and chanting during Drums that made me laugh as well.
Probly more like a 3.5, but I'm tryin to be extra discerning as this is my first ever post on the archive. Hey everybody. :)
Great show!! Check it out!!

Subject: Five stars?
Subject: GREAT RECORDING
Subject: Great '81
1st set highlights:
Friend of the Devil is really hot, in particular Brent and Jerry really get off hard.
Big River has a really tight quaility with hot Brent solo to boot.
CC Rider fabulous, with a High Time tease between CC and Brown-eyed Women.
The rest of the set is a really, really good performance with wonderful listenablility due to the great recording.
2nd Set highlights:
Nice Shakedown opener.
I little bit faster tempo Lost/Saint makes for a great rendition. Lost/Saint is really a highlight for the band through this entire year. You could tell all members were digging on this combo big time.
Saint goes into an always cool Spanish Jam.
Stella is killer version. I'd love to hear the "Soundboard" recording of this song.
GDTRFB through UJB all really great listening.
After listening to 5 or 6 shows from '81 over the last 2 weeks, one undeniable truism is that Brent has made his mark in the band with a combo of great rhythm section accompaniment, soulful and generally in harmony backgound vocals and really sizzling leads, with a series of really good writing not far off in the future. Since 4 and 1/2* (for the slightly less crisp patch from Stell onward) is not an option, I go with a 5* on this one.
